The old mother redcap is situated at the Southern edge of Rishton's boundary (literally!) Across the road is Knuzden village, only 10 yards away!

The drawing on here shows the original farm building with the hexagonal windows on both of the extension buildings.

Inside the Old Mother Redcap

This was the only building in the area with these windows, and up to the building being refurbished during the 1990's by a brewery, were still visible. They have since been covered up with signs and I'm not sure if they have been filled in with bricks as well.
